Wherever I look in the Toffees team they have issues – this is a team that looks past it’s best with the likes of Gareth Barry and Silvin Distin in particular not the players they were.
Tim Howard, Gareth Baines and Ross Barkley don’t look the part these days and Phil Jagielka doesn’t look as secure as he has been.
Also I can’t think of another club in the country that would have given Samuel Eto’o a contract at this stage of his career.
All of this puts Roberto Martinez under a huge amount of pressure and I believe the Hammers will ;pile a lot more on him by the end of the night. I’m not at all sure Martinez even knows what his best team is.
This is a game the lads should win – given all of the above I don’t believe there is a better time to be playing Everton.
Despite the absences of such as Diafra Sakho, Cheik Kouyate and possibly Alex Song, I believe we have enough and a way of playing that can unsettle them.
The Hammers, like every other club, has had a little dip in form and I see this as a perfect opportunity to get back on track.
I don’t see them failing.
